The GT2000 11 has had a glow up and I’m here for it!

When it comes to running shoes, I’m a Gel Kayano gal, but I’m also a huge fan of the GT2000. It’s a very supportive shoe for those midweek miles, allowing me to keep my beloved Kayanos for those Sunday long runs!

Although I may have to rethink my shoe preferences after trying out the newly released ASICS GT2000 11

Enter the all-new ASICS GT2000 11 – what’s changed?

Let’s start with the game-changing FF BLAST midsole, providing an extra millimetre of cushioning without adding any weight. This innovative feature makes the ASICS GT-2000 11 softer, lighter, and more comfortable than ever.

Embedded within the midsole is ASICS’ exclusive LITETRUSS technology, a firm material that prevents excessive inward foot rolling – a boon for runners with flat arches or overpronation!

The redesigned breathable mesh upper not only adapts to your foot’s shape but also incorporates recycled materials, aligning with eco-conscious choices. Offering ample stretch for slightly wider feet, the GT2000 11 is also available in wide sizing for those seeking extra room.

Stability in the heel and flexibility in the forefoot define the ASICS GT2000 11’s comfort. A newly designed bevelled heel ensures smoother landings, while flex grooves in the outsole facilitate seamless heel-to-toe transitions.

  • Heel height 22 mm

My thoughts

Having worn the ASICS GT-2000 11 for a month, I can confidently share my experiences across various run lengths and conditions.

While the GT-2000 10 was great, the latest model surpasses it. The FF BLAST foam provides the perfect blend of spring, softness, and support. The shoe offers excellent grip, even in damp conditions. True to size, it fits my foot comfortably with ample toe room – I do go up a full size in my running shoes.

Compared to the Kayano 29, I find the GT-2000 11 softer underfoot at a more budget-friendly price, making it a superior option.

For those seeking a reliable everyday trainer with stability, the GT-2000 11 stands out. With a variety of eye-catching colour options, disappointment is not on the agenda.
